look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a 22 ounce bottle into my DFH Snifter.
A - Pours a motor oil black in color with a light orange ring that is slightly noticeable in the light. A khaki to light brown head that is huge, 2 to 3 fingers tall develops and then very slowly turns into a gorgeous thick cap.
S - CHOCOLATE!!! God this smells delish. Almost smells like a liquid half Hershey Milk Chocolate bar and half Hershey Special Dark with a nice malty background. Lots of roasted notes and some light coffee notes coming through as well.
T - Tastes of sweet chocolate, oats, and maple. A very awesome roasted malty backbone holds this beer up and really smooths things out. Almost no alcohol is present at all which makes this beer even more awesome.
M - Very syrupy in the mouth. Dense and thick. A perfect sipper at the end of the night. Has a good amount of carbonation as well.
D - Highly drinkable! This is one to drink fresh over and over. Not sure cellaring would do this beer any good as the ABV is low and the chocolate would probably just dissapear.

Poured from a 650 mL bottle into a small plastic cup (unfortunately all that I had at the time).
1.5 finger head over a solid black-brown body. Head settled to a thin layer that stayed around a while. Lacing on the side of the glass.
Chocolatey scent over the head, as advertised. Not much else.
Taste: Bittersweet dark chocolate. More on the bitter side than the sweet side. Not too bad. The bottle label says 69 IBU.
Moderately strong carbonation.
Overall, perhaps a little too tart for my tastes, but it's not so extreme that I don't want to finish it.
